Plain Jane 18" Doll Shoe Pattern

104 reviews   |  

If you ever wanted to try your hand at making shoes for your 18” doll, this is the pattern for you. It's a great beginner pattern by Love U Bunches. Minimal sewing, a little bit of glue, really cute shoes! It's also a great way to use up scraps from your stash. It only takes a little bit of fabric to make an awesome pair of shoes. And NO hot glue! You can make shoes to match every outfit! So many options… plain, fussy cut, tabs, ties, vinyl!
Your doll is going to need a bigger closet!

Works with Pixie Faire Shape 1 soles.

Plain Jane Shoes

These are a great basic starter shoe pattern. Instructions are easy to follow and shoes fit well. I’ve made several different shoe patterns and construction methods, and find I prefer these glued (I like Aleene’s Tacky Glue) rather than done with hot glue. Definitely recommend the “pull tab” on the heel to help get these on, but once on, they do stay on well.
